Increased Consumption Of Dietary Fiber Offers Many Health Benefits

January 11, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Indian scientists who analyzed decades of research on the benefits of dietary fiber (or roughage) report that consuming adequate quantities can improve  gastrointestinal health, reduce susceptibility to diseases such as diverticular disease, heart disease, colon cancer, and diabetes. Consuming more dietary fiber has also been associated with increased satiety and weight loss. Dietary fiber – i.e., the non-digestible parts of the fruit and vegetable products we eat – can be obtained from fruit, vegetables, whole-grain foods, such as muesli and porridge, beans and pulses, as readily available foods rich in dietary fiber.
